    I sure hope so... I went with a 512 instead of a 1gb hope I don't regret it, but it allowed me to get the ram and the SATA burner with it as well

    Yea unless you got GTA4(which sucks) you don't NEED a 1gb. I am perfectly fine with 512mb at 1440x900 and 1920x1080.

    Nice AMD rig. I would have waited for Phenom 2, but it's still good.

    Damn very nice man and Im envious. I would have went with the MSI D9KAGX board though, if you were gonna go that route. I got the same Burner coming to me. It ships out of Edison, NJ.

    BTW, I love that you had $410.00 in Giftcards. Where can I get that??

    sell it / trade it.

    couldn't afford it even if I wanted to.

    I love my current biostar, and have had no problems with it. Plus it was bundled with the processor for $30 off.

    Parents gave me $200 for xmas, $150 for birthday, wifes aunt gave me $30 for both xmas and bday :D

    That card will be more more than enough, unless you upgrade your monitor :D.

    And Congratz!

    It's a good system, I wouldn't say it would last years but it's a good setup.

    That will last years, he didnt say years playing at max settings. My friend was using his old Barton 2500+ and x850pro till this year and playing COD4 with it (above min settings) just fine and he built that comp like 5 years ago. Enjoy the 9850 and 4870, both good choices.

    Not unless you plan on donating one to me, or trading for my XP or current system that's going to the FS/FT section once UPS shows up! :rockout:
